Mainly due to the reason that in order for the model to succeed you need to be able to supply your customers with top quality service professionals. A company who recently had to close due to the intricate way that it handled its contractors was Homejoy. Homejoy is a platform very similar to Handy that has since closed earlier this year as it was facing 4 lawsuits by its contractors who were questioning their position at the firm. Handy on the other hand does not see its contractors as actual employees of the firm. Rather their main focus is to make it possible for people to provide their services very flexibly without having to sign into some sort of employment contract. This has allowed both students or busy parents to make some extra cash using this platform. Actually according to Oisin Hanrahan the founder and CEO of Handy said that 80 percent of the contractors on his platform work less than 20 hours per week and for that exact reason allows people from all walks of life to make a little bit of extra money through his platform. The founder of Homejoy, Aaron Cheung is facing further backlash as it has surfaced that he was saving customer data and providing it to other parties.
